Here's how to tie it with a 5 3/8 side release fastex buckle.
Apologies for the sub-par pictures. I had trouble holding the camera steady and the knots tightly.
Step 1: Materials
These can be two different colours if you like.
2) A side release buckle. 5 free samples are available from the ITW Nexus website or you may purchase them from Supply Captain.
3) A lighter or thread matching the colour of your cordage.
1) A knife or a pair of scissors
Step 2: Attaching the Buckle
The thing that sets this bracelet apart from the others on Instructables is that you attach the male end after you finish the weave.
Repeat for the other length of paracord.
You should now have four strands of cord to work with.
Step 3: Beginning the Weave
You're going to want to take the left two strands, wrap them over the right two strands, and bring them back around under the right two strands, and through the loop formed by doing that.
Tighten, but not too much or the knots will begin to twist.
Do it on the other side.
So, here's what it looks like.
Step 4: Keep Going!
Step 5: As You Go...
If there is too much slack, remove however many knots you need to create a comfortable fit.
If there is not enough slack, keep going!
Step 6: Attaching the Other End of the Buckle
Time to attach the male end of the buckle.
Run all four strands through the first slot in the male end of the buckle.
Then, run it back through the second slot.
If you have large fingers, a pair of needle-nose pliers may help here. I didn't need them.
Step 7: Secure the Buckle
To secure them, tie two more half hitches.
Tighten and check fit. Now is your last chance to do any minor adjustments on fit.
Step 8: Securing the Ends
If you would like a cleaner look, you can melt the ends and then sew them as to prevent fraying.
Seriously. Be smart when you're melting the ends. Molten anything is not fun to have on any part of your body. I'm not sure how you could die from this, but if you do, I'm not responsible for it. Use common sense.
Step 9: You're Done!
